Rising Stars Program

The Rising Stars Symposium will be a 2-day event held in Fall, 2022. Outstanding graduate students will be selected for this honorable symposium. Senor graduate students within a year before graduation or half year after are eligible to apply. We welcome candidates working in biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, mass spectrometry, or related areas. We especially encourage candidates who are from underrepresented groups in science but not at the exclusion of other candidates.

The selected rising stars will have the opportunity to come and visit Washington University in St. Louis, present their work, see the facilities, and meet with faculty who may be potential postdoc advisors. All expenses will be paid for students from US and Canada (international students will join remotely).
